with themselves over here, the administration and the rest of america is kind of in another place and i think the administration rightly so and remember this was an issue when the president was first elected, there were questions about whether or not he would use the power of that database of people. i think it is a great thing and i hope he does it because i think it is important people you said outside of washington know the kinds of gains going on on capitol hill and the things this people voted for not being acted upon by republicans. >> as i was talking with congressman van holen, again, there is a growing number of gop folk that is seem to be backing away from grover norquist's tax pledge. given that the very idea of raising taxes could be damaging to any republican who might be facing a primary in the next year, is there really enough support for shunning norquist at this point? >> you remember, even when george bush was president, democrats said they wouldn't cut taxes at all. bush ended up winning that pr battle and the conversation wasn't about whether they would cut taxes and how m

is a number one priority. he writes supposedly any day now investors will lose faith in america's ability to come to grips with its budgets failures. when they do there will be a run on treasury bonds, interest will spike and the u.s. economy will plunge back into recession. this sounds plausible to many people because it's roughly speaking what happened to greece but we're not greece. he's saying while this is a real dynamic for some countries, it is not because of the way we fund ourselves, is that right, ben? >> that's right. i would say morning munnize not actually by given name. >> i didn't know that. >> he's right, we're not greece, we're a much larger economy. we can grow our way out of debts and deficits. we've got a ginormous economy. we had a huge black friday weekend. probably $600 billion for the total shopping over the holidays. the question is, as we get close and getting into december, if it looks like talks are breaking down and we have the same old lines on no tax increases for the wealthy versus no spending cuts at all on the left on social security or medicare, then you

's a wylie coyote, road runner thing. they do not want to be accused as being the reason america goes off the fist cal cliff. i think it's reasonable. i think democrats and republicans recognize the war is over. time to think about 2014, 2016, roll up our sleeves and negotiates. >> i'm trying to figure out exactly what that'll mean. will there be changes in social security, will cain? changes in the medicare program? will we really think about switching to a voucher program? >> i don't know, carol. look, democrats are giving lip service to reforming some of our entitlements like medicare. senator dick durbin was on abc and suggested that. the minute you push for specifics, raising the retirement age on medicare, he starts to flounder. i don't know we're moving towards any kind of deal yet. on politics, simplicity sells. a tax pledge is very simple. it communicates with your voters directly. here's the deal. republicans want low taxes for two reasons. they believe it's better for economic growth. we lost the election. we're going to lose that battle. also because they believe it will force
